I seem to be having immense trouble purchasing Bitcoin online. I managed to get 4 of them via the #bitcoin-otc channel a few weeks ago but now I have to wait 3 days to get voice on the channel. I paid via Paypal to one of the people there and had no problems with it, and I've been searching everywhere to just get some Bitcoin without having to wait for days on end but I'm a bit stuck now.
I've used https://bitmarket.eu/
without any problems. PayPal is one of the options available to buy and sell bitcoins. The site confirms each user registration manually so it takes a day or two to get started. To deal with the trust issue, the moderators ask for some kind of proof of your online "reputation" on IRC or Coinpal, or link to your eBay account feedback for example. I have bought Bitcoins via this site with no problems.https://britcoin.co.uk/
is another site I use. To add money to your account you have to deposit using a bank transfer to Mr. Taaki (a prominent member of this forum) using a unique reference number. Once in your account you can use the money to buy bitcoins which you could then transfer to your wallet address. Once your money is in your account the buying process is automated and (almost) instant.
I don't have any connection with these 2 sites other than a regular user.
